Description

A bill from Talbot Sweeney, on behalf of the Eastern State Asylum, to Elizabeth Elliott for several months of mental health services for an enslaved man named Peter, who can be found in many other documents in the collection.

Talbot Sweeney's name is used as the dominant because that is how it is listed on the reverse of the page, and thus indicated where it likely fell in the original order.
